True success is being able to obtain our day-to-day basic needs while maintaining a loving attitude toward ourselves and others.
This implies that in our day-to-day living, we will attempt to balance work, recreation, comtemplation, and sharing time with others.
It is desirable for all of these aspects of our lives to reflect a loving attitude toward ourselves and others to the extent of our current ability. Among other things this would mean that we do our work in a way which is satisfying to us and helpful to others. It also means that obtaining more than we need does not make us more successful.
By this definition, we can all achieve success. The severely handicapped may need extra help from others, but even so, we all can feel competent and loving within the framework of our own particular gifts.
